SCC hosted another successful Glow Stick regatta. All the boats and sailors looked glowing! We even had “glow” trophies this year. We had about 10 boats and 21 sailors! Thanks Trish for making the trophies! And thanks to Jim Young and crew for running the regatta. It was fantastic as usual!

What’s the fastest growing high school sport in the US?
Some hints—it uses neither stick nor ball, teams are co-ed, and competing schools often practice together and share coaches. Give up?
From the East Coast to the West and from the Great Lakes to the Gulf, sailing clubs are sponsoring high school sailors in greater numbers than ever before. Sailing provides a great opportunity for teamwork and head-to-head racing in some of the world’s most beautiful venues, and the waters of Southern Maryland are no exception. We live in a sailor’s paradise, with great breezes, a near-year-round sailing season, and a forgiving, sandy shoreline.
The Chesapeake Bay has groomed some of the best sailors in the sport, and even though Annapolis declares itself the Sailing Capital of the US—its area high school teams routinely finish at the top in national competitions—Southern Maryland sailors are working hard to challenge them. Come out this fall to see sailors from Leonardtown, Great Mills, and St. Mary’s Ryken give those Annapolis kids a run for their money! Home JV regattas are scheduled at Tall Timbers on 14 September and 25 October, and the Mid-Atlantic Varsity championship regatta is scheduled at Tall Timbers for 17 and 18 October.

Sailing Center Chesapeake, located in Tall Timbers Maryland, will host a special Junior Varsity Championship Regatta on Sunday, April 27, 2014. This event will be held at Tall Timber’s Marina, on the dock area just outside the Reluctant Navigator Restaurant.
SCC is teaming up with The National Safe Boating Council at this year’s JV Championship to promote water safety and awareness.
We are inviting everyone in the community to participate in this event by showing up at Tall Timber’s Marina, wearing their Personal Floatation Devices and join us as we participate and promote the National Safe Boating Council’s very worthy program. We even welcome leashed dogs who might have a life jacket as part of their wardrobe to participate in our event!
A professional photographer will be on hand to capture a group photograph immediately following our 10am skipper meeting, and to take multiple photographs during the day’s events.
About 100 competitive high-school aged sailors will visit St. Mary’s County along with their coaches and families for this JV Championship Regatta, April 27. The visiting students and tourists are traveling from schools throughout the D.C., Annapolis, and Baltimore areas. Locally, our Junior Varsity sailing teams from Great Mills High School and Leonardtown High School will be participating in this competition as well.
Sailing Center Chesapeake offers our heartfelt thanks to Rick Meatyard, owner of Tall Timber’s Marina, for making our high school program and this special Regatta possible. The Reluctant Navigator will extend the hours and offerings of its popular Sunday Brunch to accommodate our visiting sailors and spectators.
If you haven’t visited the Reluctant Navigator yet, be prepared for a delicious meal, Rick Meatyard has been scrambling our eggs for more than 30 years and it simply gets better each time. Please plan to enjoy a delicious breakfast as you watch a group of talented high school students hoist their main sails and demonstrate their considerable skills!
